ok, i hope i get all this info right, i have a hp 640i DL light scribe burner with the latest firmware, and have had over 40 successful backups to this point, I am using the latest version of anydvd and the latest version of clone dvd.
Now here is where my problem is and i cant quite figure if it is anydvd clonedvd or my dvd rom drive but here goes
i backedup stuart little without any incident, the backup works perfectly on all dvd players including my pc, it even plays fine on my windows media player using the dvd codecs of course. Now i went and tried to make a backup of the backup and suddenly AnyDVD couldnt read the dvd or be able to check anything on it? in this case should i just disable anydvd and then use clone dvd to burn, (i was trying this method so it didnt have to compress it again) I mean its not that i cant make another backup from the original, and i can also rip it directly to my harddrive using the rip function in anydvd. Or i can insert the backup into my burner and it works fine? so what im trying to ask is where might my issue in this all be? ive come to three conclusions and im hoping one of you wiser and more experianced could point me in the correct direction.
im thinking it can be :
a> my dvd rom drive is degrading to the point the laser reader is breaking down
b> Anydvd is messing things up being on (altho i dont think it should get in the way)
or c>ive missed something in a step somewhere in my reading here and i need to read alil more.
now im sorry in advance if this is kinda all over the road, but ive tried to include all my checks and steps in so someone can give me a decent idea.
